We work in partnership with developers, businesses and government agencies, such as the DWP, to provide employment opportunities for the local community. This can range from work experience opportunities for the long term unemployed to apprenticeships with new local businesses. A great example is our Youth Works! project which supports young people into employment. Our knowledge of the local business community and our good working relationships with local employment support providers and organisations such Job Centre Plus, puts us in a unique position to understand the gaps in local provision and create the links to ensure an effective and responsive service is provided to the community.
